- Jeffrey Archer

About this Quote

This quote by Jeffrey Archer highlights the alarming rate of illiteracy amongst individuals entering prison today. It recommends that a large portion of the prison population is unable to read or write, which can have a significant effect on their capability to operate in society. This lack of literacy can lead to an absence of job opportunities, making it hard for individuals to support themselves and their households. It can also lead to a lack of understanding of the law, making it more likely that individuals will dedicate criminal offenses. Additionally, illiteracy can result in an absence of understanding of the consequences of their actions, making it most likely that people will reoffend. This quote works as a pointer of the importance of literacy and the need for more resources to be dedicated to helping those who are illiterate.
